Golden Bear Cottages was originally opened as a full resort lodge in 1927. It has been continually operating since then. The cabin construction was started in 1915. Over the years it has become a historic landmark in Big Bear Lake. Don and Karen DiCarlo and Lisa and Len Duran are only the fifth family to own this property in over 90 years (purchased in 1999). These historic resort cabins at our AAA approved lodging property are easily identifiable as a group of free-standing rental cabins at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake. Golden Bear Cottages can easily be recognized as its own quaint mountain village.  Bring your family or group and enjoy our outdoor spa, heated pool and unique non-hotel outdoor recreation areas.

7. What is the best compliments we have received from a client?
"Very flexible, courteous, friendly ownership! My friends and I are serving in the U.S. Navy stationed in San Diego and we travel to Golden Bear Cottages on weekends in the Winter whenever our schedule allows. Instead of making the 3-hour drive back to San Diego one day, we decided to rent a nice big cabin. Golden Bear Cottages Resort just happened to be the first place we stopped, and we have been in love with it since. Once, we were snowed in on the mountain and we couldn't leave, and they gave us a generous discount on our cottage to ease our burden".   Signed, Mike Mitchell and friends in the U.S. Navy. San Diego, CA
"For our returning group: another great retreat at Golden Bear Cottages in Big Bear Lake. Once again, thank you so much for an amazing stay. We always appreciate all the extra service, and sincerely love your hospitality and friendliness. Each of our group leaders commented that each member of your staff were so accommodating to us. You always provide our group the best place to stay. Thanks again for the late check-outs for group members who had later travel arrangements back to San Francisco. Your resort property and variety of cabin sizes, big and small, is always perfect for our group planning retreats. We will see you again for our next group event in Southern California.'   Jacquelyn Lindeman, California Youth Connection" San Francisco, CA
